Day out in Amsterdam

I finally got to go around Amsterdam to see some architecture earlier today, thanks to a great plan by Thomas to show us around his town. Thomas is the architecture Historian who took us to New York and a dear friend of our group here at the Berlage. Here's a few snaps from today.

This is MVRDV's Silodam project along the river very close to the Centre of the city.

Above is one of the best examples of the Amsterdam School Style of architecture. This is the 'Het Scheep' project designed by Micheal de Klerk.

And this last snap is of some temporary student housing made of self contained container units.
